The Klein Four (A group)

Perhaps The Klein Four have passed you by as well as me. Well fret not. They are an a capella group from the maths department of Northwestern Univeristy and they shot to fame last year with their love song Finite Simple Group of Order Two, which can be watched online:



They have an album out, full of more maths puns than you can shake a stick log at, which you can purchase via their website (where you can see some of their other performances) or even via iTunes.

The Klein four group, or Vierergruppe, is a direct product of two copies of Z_2, and allows us to solve the quartic.

This reminds me of the song about quantum mechanics some of my friends made after the undergraduate course.

Do you have a copy of it? The more funny physics songs the merrier.

The writer Stanislaw Lem may have started this off with his Love and Tensor Algebra from Cyberiad.

Runes of Magic is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role playing Game without monthly costs all kinds of Rom Gold and free to download. The premise is that you have played this game and understand the necessary Runes of Magic Gold in the Runes of Magic game. Perhaps the first monster I saw taken down in the demo can gain those varieties of Runes of Magic money. Characters choose one class; the important one is that we have to buy Rom Gold first. You can switch freely between the two classes, but you can only use primary abilities from your primary class, along with cheap Runes of Magic Gold, secondary abilities from your secondary class.

This performance just reminds me of an old song about quantum mechanics some of my precious friends made after the undergraduate course! How wonderful it sounds! I have no words to describe my admiration. Only custom paper writing services will be capable to do so in a professional way!
